"Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's back to work I go..."
Welcome back to the Playlist of Life, hope you all had a nice Christmas --- for many of you it's probably still going on! --- but some of us have to get back to work! Still, this is hardly work, is it?

I'm sorry to say that I have to start off the first entry after Christmas on a very sad and tragic note, having just heard the awful news about the passing of the wife of our own Jackhammer. It's obviously a terrible time for such a tragedy --- not that there's ever a good time to lose a loved one, but having it happen so close to a time when everyone is celebrating must be doubly hard, and my heart goes out to you, my friend, and your children.

I hope that in the dark days to come you can find some small ch1nks of light, and I know that for your kids' sake you need to be strong, and that it's often the hardest thing to do when you just want to break down and know you can't, that you don't have that luxury. I don't want to trivialise in any way your hurt and pain, but I would like to dedicate the first video in the post-Christmas journal to you, and your family. I thought long and hard about what would be appropriate, yet still respectful and hopefully show a measure of understanding. I think this song really says it all. Be strong, brother, we're all here for you.
